HP doesn't provide Linux support for most of its hardware... if you want to get hardware components working, you'll have to install individual third party drivers (that is, if they've been written).

So, what hardware doesn't work? Once you find out the hardware that isn't working, you can usually google the model name and find Linux drivers for it which you can install.

I have an hp dv6000t and I have been able to get everything working with a little work. The biggest hurdle was the webcam but it was remedied with a few hours of googling. So what doesn't work?
